Heritage building fire destroys government press
Friday November 1, 2013 9:13 PM, IANS

A fire broke out in a heritage building here early Friday, destroying the British-built structure and the government printing press in it, the fire service said.

The fire, noticed around 2 a.m., rapidly enveloped the building spread over 15,000 sq feet as it was stacked with papers and printing equipment, a fire service official told IANS.

"It is a heritage building from the British period. Such buildings should have fire safety equipment like smoke detectors and water sprinklers," the official added.

He said the building collapsed due to intense heat. No one was injured in the blaze as it broke out before dawn.
